The Role.

As the lead representative of the Students' Union, the President has a unique responsibility in representing all students across campus. As chair of the Trustee Board and a member of the highest level committees of the University, the President leads on representing students on key issues with the University, nationally and in the community. From lobbying the University to provide free sanitary items across campus to overseeing divestment from fossil fuels, the role leads on impactful positive change which benefits the student body. In recent years, the President has also co-launched new campaigns such as Decolonising NCL & Divestment from Fossil Fuels.

About Me.

Hi everyone! I came to Newcastle in 2015 for my BA History & back again in 2020 to study my MSc in Global Public Health. Having experienced being an UG, a confused graduate and PG, I feel motivated to improve the entire Uni experience, including the Newcastle community beyond graduation. This past year's been really tough (for some people more than others) & I want to make this next year the social, memorable time that all students deserve to experience! The overarching vision for me is for our campus to be a vibrant, welcoming, inclusive, and sustainable place whereby we can all thrive both academically and personally.
